Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"At the time of my death again, as I remember my circumstances,
yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ
tyajaty ante kalevaram
(BG 8.6)

The subtle body mind, intelligence and ego that does not annihilate. The gross body earth, water, air, fire that is finished. Then the subtle body carries me to another gross body. Just like the flavor; the air carries the flavor. If it is blowing on some nice rose garden, the air carries the flavor of the rose. Similarly, my activities in this life will be, at the time of death, will be carried by the subtle body to form another gross body. So that gross body may be any one of the 8,400,000's. There are 8,400,000 forms of body. And by the laws of nature, I will have to enter in one of them. Therefore you will find varieties of living entities. So bhakti-yoga means to get relief from this business of being entangled in different bodies. That is called bhakti-yoga."
